Hideous.

Guess it's a dragon "feature" that you get to pay for remote start twice (look at the window sticker)?

I really don't think Jeep's target crowd is people like us with that model. Just sayin'.

LOL. Jeep knows that people will pay a huge premium for limited edition Wranglers. This one however oversteps those invisible boundaries.

Maybe it'll be popular in China? With 100% import tax it'll cost them $85k to own one but if you can afford to drive in China, this is nothing.

i was there when the photographer was taking pictures of it at Koons(laughing my ass of the whole time). The dragon stickers were a bit more subtle in person, but still horrible none the less.

They have to be targeting China. I hear China has more jeep sales then any country except the USA. I think they are absolutely hideous and figure whomever at jeep that thought this up has to be the same that comes up with the colors they choose. I am fairly certain they will come out with a baby puke green soon. Can't wait.

I can't "unsee" this with any black/gold combo on a vehicle. In fact, I think I'd peel off the dragon and put the Pontiac Fire Chicken on the hood!

Who comes up with these marketing ideas? Personally, I wouldn't buy this even if they offered it to me for $15k off sticker. It's downright hideous. Buy what do I know? I thought Commando Green and Rock Lobster were hideous too but there's obviously a market for those colors.

I was in San Antonio on business this week, stopped at a few dealerships to check out the 2014s....one had a dragon edition....it is UGLIER than the pictures attest....holy cow it looks like a Fast & Furious ricer edition. Just had to throw my two cents in on how ugly it is.

it wouldnt be to bad, if all the bronze exterior accents weren't on it. i see this being the perfect jeep for more of the "Urban" crowd here in the US.... either that or just some yuppies that want to spend alot for a special edition sahara.

Ugly really is an understatement. What were they thinking? I wonder if any gets sold in the us and if so I wonder how much the dealer will have to pay to the poor wack a doodle that asks for one. Maybe they'll give it to SP for 15K under but I don't think SP would take it even for that after first real time glance. My eyes hurt just seeing it.
Spoke with my dealer and they said they are getting one in. When I asked why they almost cried. They know it's ugly and said they have no choice I guess. LOL. Poor guys know that they have to pay flooring and cleaning costs for ever.

LOL. I have one for sale on our lot, our Jeep District rep called and asked if we wanted a "SAHARA" allocated to us because it was extra or something. So this thing shows up off the truck and I really was at a loss for words.... so yeah, I look at this thing everyday. There are some neat aspects about it, like the side of the seats are textured dragon scales. Doesn't make it any more appealing though.

What's funny is you all drive wranglers. The dragon edition is a wrangler. You laugh at the dragon edition. Which suggests your own vehicles are one giant sticker away from being something you would laugh at also.

Ouch.

There's one sitting at David Stanley Dodge too. I went to pick up a part and saw it on th front line yesterday. I thought it wasn't as bad in person, although I noticed the dragon sticker's outline was more obvious than I would have liked, they took the edge pretty far out from the dragon. Obviously you can't swap the tires for bigger ones without losing the spare tire cover either, and although I don't like many spare covers, I like the dragon design on it a bit. Obviously, I'm not the target market here, if the price was right, I would buy it and modify it though - most faults can be modified away.

Would you want to drive around in a Lamborghini with giant "I LOVE PECKERS!" decals on it? There is no vehicle made that isn't one giant sticker away from being laughed at.
